Is this Chinese 16 seater a worthy competitor to the likes of the Toyota Sesfikile, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Iveco Daily and VW Crafter?

Although one might imagine, according to stereotypes, that passenger safety isn’t of the highest concern, drivers of the V80 can at least boast that rear passengers are taken care of at a standard safety level with individual seats and 2 point lap safety belt. I’d imagine that enforcing that they actually wear them is the hardest part.

At R299 900 it does offer a lot of vehicle for your money, a decent standard specification and the feeling of solidity with regards to interior build quality. A 3 year 100 000km factory warranty is standard issue and for an extra R13 900 on top of the asking price, you can purchase a 5 year 90 000km service plan. Service intervals are pegged at 15 000km intervals.

In all honesty the Maxus V80 is up against some tough competition and crucially public opinion of Chinese vehicles which is not great. In a highly competitive industry like the taxi industry longevity is a key buying decision and in that regard the V80 as a long-term value proposition can only be evaluated over time.
